More than 36 swans were killed and another 8 injured during a brutal hailstorm that swept through Davis and Salt Lake counties, Utah, earlier this month.
According to officials, more birds, among others also geese, are still being called in from residents.
The statement from DWR says: “Due to the nature of the blunt force injuries and other indicators, it is believed that the storm forced the birds down, resulting in high-speed impacts with the ground or other stationary objects.”
Nearly two weeks ago, heavy winds and hailstorms hit the Wasatch Front on Friday night into Saturday morning, causing damages to property and wildlife.
According to Detective Ken Hansen with the Unified Police Force, a wind microburst hit the Taylorsville area at approximately 1:00 a.m. Saturday, knocking down trees in the area.
